A new version of the package is available which integrates all updates
you noticed.
I controlled all files twice but an error or anything else could be
hidden in.

You will find all links need to reach the package on mentors.debian.net

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- - URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/d/dhcp-probe
- - Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable
main contrib non-free
- - dget

As you could see, i follow Niel Williams requirements for package
version (increment from the previous post).

I hope this package version will suite Debian requirements.

Best regards
